    Whoa!!! What is that? Looks like velvet to me, but not a clear shot. I would be drowning his food in C and garlic....I know someone will pop in here and tell us what that is.

    the makings on the head and upper body is a reflection Im looking at the the tail area.. it looks like bumps almost, I always do garlic, I put 3 drops in a day and then I also soak the food in it every other day along with zoe supplement.. I'l start to add Vit C into the tank.

    Can you get a closer pic of that?

    I'm guessing its probably some kind of cancer,but thats just a wild guess.

    It may be some kind of isopod thats attached to the fish and borrowed into it.

    well my hippo tang is looking better, they are not puffed up anymore and seem to look like they are going away still treating the water with Vit C, Garlic, and Artemiss.
